Talking goats, doomed kittens and a *lot* of projectile vomiting, Drag Me To Hell found Sam Raimi back in his comedy-horror element after his lucrative turn behind the Spider Man franchise. But does it have the potential to become an Evil Dead-esque franchise?
For this week's episode of Beyond The Box Set, we discuss the extreme pettiness of Gypsy curses, Octavia Spencer's blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo and the wonderfully ludicrous concept of Professor Justin Long, before pitching our own ideas for extending the franchise - including a sequel set entirely in hell itself, and the unlikely but strangely compelling confluence of Star Wars, Jade Pinkett-Smith and Sam Raimi.
Beyond The Box Set is a movie podcast with a devilish twist. Every week, we take a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. From Gladiator: The Musical to a stoner comedy sequel to Titanic, no cinematic sacred cow is safe from our questionably creative writing...
You can find our show on all good podcasting platforms, including iTunes, Spotify and Stitcher - plus we also offer a wide variety of bonus content on Patreon, including reviews of current cinema releases and the opportunity to pick a movie for us to bastardise on a future episode - all for as little as $2 per month thanks to our pay as you feel tiered sponsorship system.
